old to new - relax tea set

Here is the long awaited Tea gift set! This would make a good little thank-you gift or just something to show you care. I made it from a tetley tea container that is still full. I like how this turned out but it did take many experiments to get the lid right... First I tried to paint it. This didnt work because the paint just chiped off. Then I tried to cover it in fabric which looked okay except that I later decided I didnt like the colour. So after a bit of thought I just put a circle of paper on it and glued on the ribbon. I like this best.
To colour the leaf stamp I just put some ink on a Q-tip, lightly misted it with water and then dabbed it onto the paper.

Supply List:

  • ink- tea dye distress ink, choc. chip, always artichoke
  • paper- always artichoke, choclate chip, tan
  • stamps- artfully asian, letters
  • other- ribbon, glue gun
